Hello I’ve owned cockatiels for years and my newest pair that I bought started mating and now they’re on their second clutch. They do well taking turns and feeding the chicks however Both times the oldest chick dies. They’ve hatched 3 eggs both times and both times the oldest chick is found dead inside nest box around day 5 or 6. They’re fed soft food (cooked veggies pasta and fruit) and seeds.

everything seems normal I don’t see trauma to their body. Mom and dad are in the nest feeding and keeping babies warm. The rest of the babies grow normally
